Another rave for Geary’s latest The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans, this time from the influential Booklist: “Geary’s archly antiquated drawing style is ideally suited for bringing bygone eras to vivid, convincing life. Geary’s exacting, historically accurate approach makes this—as well as his other nonfiction works—a natural for true-crime fans as well as comics lovers.” About […]

“After 9 years, Richard Moore is bringing the Boneyard series to a conclusion, but you can still get in on the fun with volume 7. And don’t worry if you haven’t read the previous 6: it’s easy to catch on to the characters and the story in this volume is complete in itself. It’s hilariously […]

“Speaking of great art, you can’t go wrong with Geary — his work displays a humor, style and class that make it instantly recognizable. This latest book adds an element of horror, though: It tells the compelling, bizarre story of a series of brutal murders in New Orleans that seem connected (but are they?). While […]

Calling it “Thoroughly enjoyable entertainment”, School Library Journal in their latest issue goes on: “The artwork is energetic with a rock-solid understanding of cartooning and kineticism … with an unusual protagonist and showcasing a quirky new voice in comics.” …Rock-solid understanding… and Brooke is all of maybe 22, fresh out of college? Oh, yeah. And […]
